Reducing the energy consumption is a major concern faced by industries worldwide to improve the economic performance while to reduce its CO2 footprint, and monitoring the energy usage at the component level is essential . This paper presents a design of an IoT (Internet of Things) based interactive system which combines non-invasive sensors and data acquisition apparatus, robust communication networks, clouds-based databases and web servers to achieve real-time monitoring of energy usage in industries. The collected energy consumption data are published to the data centre automatically through the wireless communication network using the MQTT protocol, while a web server driven by Apache is developed to provide a human-data interaction dashboard in B/S (Browser I Server) structure. The system can not only assist industrial energy management but also provide a platform to improve energy-saving, emission reduction, along with other potentials. The system has been implemented in a local bakery company, confirming its applicability for remote real-time monitoring of energy consumption in the industry
